HTC “Still On Schedule” With Desire HD ICS Upgrade, Rumors Of Cancellation Greatly Exaggerated


Canadian carrier TELUS had mentioned last week that the Android 4.0 upgrade for the HTC Desire HD had been canceled, citing “poor device performance in testing.” Since Ice Cream Sandwich has been known to run fine on many devices with lower specs, this raised a few eyebrows. The fine folks over at Android Central felt the same way and decided to reach out to HTC to get the skinny.

Here’s what HTC told them:

We remain committed to providing customers with the latest software updates when possible. As such, we are pleased to confirm we are still on schedule to deliver an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for both the HTC Desire HD and Desire S.

So TELUS apparently didn’t get that memo. Looks like the Desire HD and Desire S both have a little more life left in them. That’s good news.
